Molly goes mad

| 10 Comments

Summer heat and humidity was making my mop too frizzy to handle, so I cut my hair. I did it myself at home, see:

(Anyone want a lock of mediatinker hair?)

The initial cut was a bit nerve-wracking, just like making the first sketch in a new notebook or writing the first page of a story. But after I sliced off a 10 cm chunk, I was committed and could relax and have fun with it. Twist, snip, twist, snip, twist snip. I hardly even looked at what I was doing. Tod calls it the "Molly goes mad with scissors" cut. It does look a bit like a three year old had at me while I was napping.

Can't decide about the single long strand. I like the asymmetry, but it sort of gets in my way. Should fashion (such as it is) come first or should function reign? What do you think? Your opinions are welcome...but please be gentle.

I tried asymmetry with my hair when I was twenty. I got a lot of moronic comments, but I liked it.

I like the long strand. It's quirky.

My vote is against the long strand. Symmetry, especially on people's faces is one of the strongest measurements of beauty.

I like the asymmetry as well as the overall look - any photos of the back? Keep it for a while to see how you feel about it, you can always chop it off if you decide against it.

Oh and BTW keep the hair and incorporate a short but sturdy plait of it into a silver ring in your jewelry making class - just like they used to in the times of Jane Austen. You set it as you would a stone in a pinky ring.

i like the strand and i'm also partial to asymetric bobs.
your new cut sure makes you look a lot younger- high school senior was my first thought.

Keep the long strand. Symmetry is highly over-. rated.

I agree with Gen. It is difficult to study beauty, but those who have tried have found that symmetry is one of the most highly 'prized' features in a persons face.

Looks good. Do what you want. The difference between a good haircut and a bad haircut is a few weeks.

Are you going for a LAIN like llok?

I didn't know about Lain, but I like her hair. I think I'll keep the lock a while and see how it behaves. I've already developed a habit of twisting it around my finger while I'm thinking...

If beauty equals symmetry and symmetry equals beauty, I'm hosed. So are a few major artists out there.
